Digital transformation is paving the way for innovation in banking

Banks that drive digital transformation are using data in the cloud and intelligent technologies to lower costs and maximise speed while improving the customer and employee experience.

Top of mind trends in the Banking industry
Migration to the cloud

Banks are operating in the cloud safely and more nimbly by leveraging intelligent technologies, such as AI and machine learning (ML), for improved speed and accuracy. They can develop new business models in the cloud to avoid being disrupted, gain efficiencies to fund innovation, and transform mission-critical systems while mitigating business risk. 

CFO as a strategic visionary

The role of the CFO is evolving and expanding with the use of data analytics and intelligent technology. Moving beyond financial reporting and P&L, CFOs are leveraging advanced data analytics to gain greater insight into strategic planning and help line-of-business heads make better-informed decisions. 

Sustainability

Banks are facing increasingly complex sustainability requirements in balancing the needs of the investor, the transition to carbon neutrality, and the advancement of social goals while grappling with regulations and data gaps. Through the use of advanced data analytics and reporting, banks can more easily meet these requirements.

Competition for talent

To attract and retain the top talent needed to drive digital transformation, banks are providing employees with the most advanced digital tools and an overall experience that fosters employee engagement, growth, and satisfaction.
